Hey all, I haven't seen any reference to Road ID here, so I thought I'd plug them. Road ID are a series of wrist bands with laser engraved emergency info. Mine has my name, my wife's phone number, a back up person's number, and some basic medical information (blood type, allergies etc). I'm an avid road biker and runner, and don't leave the house without mine. Here is the site:

That's actually a great idea. Whenever I run, I almost always have my ID on me but just recently I got something similar to the Road ID. There was a deal on Earndit for a Go Sport ID (really the same thing) and I got one.

They have a bunch of different models and styles and I recommend everyone get something like this.

As a disclaimer, if you sign up for Earndit through the link above, I earn 100 bonus points after you earn your first 100 activity points. But you also get 50 bonus points yourself by doing that.

That is slick looking! The only thing I don't like about it, as opposed to RoadID, is the lettering is the same color as the backer, which I think would make it harder to read in low light conditions.

I always run or walk with mine, saves space and in the event of an accident or something like that they are unmistakeable.

Seems like a pretty good idea. Like a wrist dog tag.

Don't worry about that, you already know what it says, and besides the only ones who will need to read it are paramedics treating your unconscious body or cops trying to identify your corpse. Either way they'll have a light handy and you'll be beyond caring.

My wife has had one for about two years (competitive runner), and this Christmas she got me one. It was the Wrist ID Elite. The band is secured by the kind of clasp you'd find on a metal watch band. Inside, the band is marked with notches, and the first time you put it on it is too big. Then you gradually trim the band down, resetting it in the clasp, until you are at the 'right' setting. The band is silicon, and wearing it in the shower I find it stays nice and clean. The clasp and the ID are lightweight (aluminum I assume) and my hairy arms have only been tagged a few times. It is snug under a French cuff shirt, and just fine under everything else. Well recommended.
